Notre Dame QB Stands for Equality

Notre Dame QB Stands for Equality


Canoga Park, Calif., student Dayne Crist loves to eat, volunteers in his spare time, and will likely replace Jimmy Clausen as University of Notre Dame's starting quarterback. And he's a gay ally.

The junior showed up to practice in July sporting a "StaND Against Hate" T-shirt, according to the Los Angeles Times. The shirt was from a week on campus dedicated to ending discrimination and harassment against LGBT students.

The events in April followed student protests in January, in which more than 100 students and faculty members marched on the campus to urge administrators to add sexual orientation to the school's antidiscrimination policy as well as acknowledge the campus's LGBT alliance. The protest came after the student newspaper published an antigay cartoon, resulting in the resignation of the paper's assistant managing editor.
